Did you upgrade to iOS 6 with the thoughts that you’d have a better mobile experience on your iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch, but didn’t? It's Maps, isn't it? Luckily, you can downgrade your device with ease back to iOS 5.1.1, and update again when Apple's released a fix for some of the features that are bugging you. Continue reading, and we’ll show you how to get your iOS 6 device back to working on iOS 5.
Alright. Admittedly there are worse things in life, but I was pretty bummed when I updated to iOS 6, only to see that Maps defers transit directions to third-party apps. Fortunately, I already use two fantastic apps for taking public transportation around the San Francisco Bay Area, but I'm aware that really won't help you out, dear reader, if you're not from where I live.
Take me out to the ball game, take me out with the crowd. Buy me an eticket for my iPhone 4S. Passbook support is simply the best. Root, root, root for the Giants, if your team doesn't have Passbook that's a shame. For it's scan! beep! Please come right in at a Giants gaaaaame!
There is no shortage of PDF apps in the App Store, but some stand a little taller than the rest. PDF Expert for iPad from Readdle, Inc, is one of the most popular and highest rated apps in this group, and today they released a major update. We already love this app, and we love it even more with all of these new goodies.
iOS 6 is out, and companies are starting to reveal their plans for Passbook, Apple's location-aware electronic ticketing system that stores, syncs, and displays passes, tickets, gift cards, and more. We spoke with StubHub about their plans to use Passbook, starting with the football teams at the University of Texas, and Purdue University in Indiana.

iPhones have long been the offenders of waking us up in the middle of night with beeps, buzzes, and bright flashing screens. Fortunately, Apple has found a solution for those sleepless nights (and times when you'd rather just not be bothered) in the form of Do Not Disturb mode. When you place your phone in this mode, your device will remain silent until you're ready to deal with notifications.
With iOS 6 -- out today! -- Apple added a lot of useful features to the iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad. From Passbook, to the new Maps app, to capturing panoramas in the revamped Camera app. Apple has brought a lot of fit and finish to iOS 6, and we'll show you how to get the most out of these new features.
